A Meal Fit For a King...and a President, a First...
This week I had the unique privilege of attending a holiday party at the most incredible home of all - The White House. I won’t go on and on about how incredible it was to meet the regal couple and shake hands with the woman whose biceps inspire my daily training sessions, but I will go on and on about the sublime spread of sweets at this special soirée. Now before I dive into the...

My Debut on THE COOKING CHANNEL
Tune into The Cooking Channel’s “Not My Mama’s Meals“ tonight at 9pm. I’ll be preparing (read: eating) shrimp po-boys and oyster shooters with Mr. Bobby Deen. CAJUN STYLE!
Mastermind Morimoto created this Sashimi “Birthday Cake” to celebrate the one year anniversary of ABC’s “The Chew”. I am speechless…a rare occurrence only a Japanese Iron Chef could make happen.

The World Is My Oyster...
…which is exactly why I’m going to take full advantage of the numerous $1.50 oyster specials being offered in restaurants for National Oyster Day. I love oysters in an alarmingly aphrodisiacal way.

Flavors like Black Fig, Tequila Lime, Sundried Apricot, and D’Anjou Pear make it a challenge not to drink this dressing straight...
Burger Without The Bulge
I admit that I am definitely the Queen of Concoctions and Combinations…there are worse things. Try this one for a healthy BBQ option. This is my curry turkey burger (extra lean ground turkey with cilantro, bell peppers, and onions) wrapped in bibb lettuce with 5-grain tempeh, tomato, and avocado. Obviously.

Always finding a means to mesh my two favorite “M”s - Meat & Music…In this episode of “Signature Sounds” I meet up with The Ramones’ drummer, Marky Ramone, at his meatball truck, “Cruisin’ Kitchen”, to to talk about music and meatballs #WomanVersusFood

Queen of Quinoa
I created my original recipe “Arugula QuinWa-ssup Salad” specifically for the unofficial launch of summer. It’s very light and refreshing and is the perfect complement to your BBQ mains. Tricolored organic quinoa, arugula, sweet yellow tomatoes, cherries, blueberries, walnuts, and a fresh lemon juice/fig-infused white balsamic vinegar to dress. Word. #QueenOfQuinoa...
